Re: Cleish Hills

Looks like it should be OK to take the minor road east past Meadowhead and hop over a gate at about NT041966 onto the hillside on the north side of Wether Hill: https://goo.gl/maps/7npwMmgh1S8PUgXt9 - is that roughly where you had in mind? Direct access from the A823 seems well defended by fences a...

Re: Trail Running

Hi, I'm a keen mountain runner, I've probably ran more Munros than I have walked now. There is certainly a different dynamic from running on easy trails or roads to running mountainous terrain. Like someone else said, the very best training is that performed on similar terrain. On terrain found in G...

Re: Montane Terra pants

I have experienced this with the Terras too. Bought a pair 2 years ago and had to opt for a large....I'm a 30 inch waist! Even then I had to have them adjusted to remove some of the elastic to make them more comfortable.

Re: Lightweight down jacket

I got a very nice lightweight Makalu down jacket by Simond from Decathlon; much cheaper than the big names in Tiso or other big brand stores but very light, packs down into a small stuff sack supplied with the jacket and I can testify to its warmth and comfortable fit. Decathlon are a French compan...

Re: Alpine Touring / Ski Mountaineering

Great info Fiona, thank you!

I paid a visit to Mountain Spirit on Saturday and had a good chat with the guys there. Well worth it.

Now need to decide (like you all have said) whether or not to spend some serious money!
